Listen: Kendrick Lamar - To Pimp a Butterfly Album Stream
Kendrick Lamar's new album arrives a week early.
'Unapologetically black and amazing,' - said Pharrell of Kendrick Lamar's incredible new, G-funk inspired track, King Kunta, which appeared online over the weekend. Today, eight days before his album was scheduled to release - Lamar was possibly avoiding a leak, although the early release date coincides with the 20th anniversary of Tupac Shakur’s Me Against the World, which Lamar signalled with a tweet:
The follow up to his 2012 debut good kid, m.A.A.d city, To Pimp a Butterfly explores free jazz, funk,and spoken-word, and is home to Lamar's Grammy-winning single i, The Blacker the Berry, and King Kunta. Snoop Dogg, Ron Isley, Bilal, James Fauntleroy, George Clinton, and more are guests.
TDE wasn't too happy about the early release:
